Is dating easy when you're a Single mom?

I have been single for a little while now and am starting to date a man who is a little older than me, but he has 2 children, so he knows how my life is and it is going really good, but i'm kinda nervous that something will change.. the kids are NOT involved as of this point, and i know it is a good idea, but how long should we wait before we get the kids together?

things will change they always do that life they maybe even rough once you get the kids together they could not liek eachother be jealous ect.. you never know thaat does not mean it will always be that way infact my son and his now step dad did not get along at all at first I did not want my son around men I dated at all but right away I kne wI was going to marry this man so after about 8 or 9 months I spent time with the 3 of us together my perfect son and loving man turned into spoiled kids both wanting my sole attention it was a nightmare I kept thinking wow I really have to break this off I was heartbroken I let myself fall in love with a man who seemed wonderful and of course my son would be my main concern so I had to end it . but I took sometime and guess what they fell in love with eachother I did not think it was going to happen but my husband just started to see that this little man just needed love and was not used to sharing his mom he never had to and and my son realized this guy makes my mom happy and shes not going anywhere and could tell my husband really cared for him and they just started to care about eachother and now I am very excited because they have such a close bond and a realationship all of there own and one that is important to them things change all the time rocky roads can lead to a brighter future

It's been my expirence that before you even date someone you should include the children because that makes them feel like they have a say in the matter.If you don't if things get close between you and your partner you will sooner or later show effection infront of the children and that can get really bad!Also you get to see how he or she handles children before it gets to far.hope this helped.
